From Principal Doll
Welcome to a new school year! I hope everyone had a good summer filled with fun activities and family time. Linganore High School continues to focus on Achievement, Accountability, and Attitude.
We set goals for our students last year and they performed very well. Here are a few of our successes:
PARENT DROP OFF
Please follow the road around the lot. Do not cut through the staff and student parking lots. As directed, pull through to the other side of the crosswalk so we can have more students exiting cars at one time. Please turn right after you drop off. Thank you!
For delayed buses go to http://www.fcps.org/transportation/bus-route-delays.cfm to see how long it will be.
